Poperatic High

According to interviews with the popera (pop + opera) boy band Il Divo, the name means "the male version of the divine." What can be more divine than four clean-shaven, tanned gentlemen in tastefully disheveled tuxedos? Il Divo is not merely a group of comfortingly feminine but powerfully masculine vocalists put together by brilliant American Idol supertwat Simon Cowell. If properly meditated on, Il Divo will take you to new levels of consciousness, lifting your chakras until you explode with pure, manufactured operatic excitement. You can also do that with a variety of products from Condoms To Go, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a clean-shaven, tanned French Tickler in a tastefully disheveled tuxedo. Get your kicks with Il Divo live at the Smirnoff Music Center, 1818 First Ave., this Wednesday. The show's at 8 p.m. and tickets are $28.75 to $78.75. Call 214-421-1111.
Wed., June 21, 8 p.m.
